How you can I help you?
I specialise in getting jobs, career change, career transition, redundancy, starting out as a freelance consultant and starting a new business. My experience and coaching knowhow is available to you to achieve your targets.
I will successfully guide you through the latest in complex recruitment processes, how recruiters operate and how to create a vibrant and robust job search campaign.
In the case of starting out in business, I will guide you through business modelling, stress testing the model, marketing and sales, to get you up and running with a well-planned, sustainable business.
What happens when a client first contacts me?
At first contact I prefer to listen. Tell me all about yourself and what it is we need to achieve. As your story unfolds I will discover the actions we need to take. A plan forms with an agreed outcome of what success will look like.
What can you expect from me as your coach?
A genuine commitment to your goals delivered with unshakeable enthusiasm and self-belief that we can achieve. A tenacity and drive that never wavers. I only work with clients on an “until successful” basis. I will keep supporting you until the agreed goals have been achieved.
What happens in your first session?
We get down to business. We team up to develop and execute the plan. It could be CVs and interviews or it could be business modelling and market research. I guarantee we will be getting very busy.
How often you would we meet?
We meet as often as the diary allows. In the beginning we may need to speak every day. I use phone, Skype, email, FaceTime and if you are located nearby we can meet face to face. We will be in constant contact and I’m available from 8am to 8pm Monday to Saturday. I’ll even deliver emergency coaching on a Sunday if you get an interview at short notice.
What does “unlimited support” really mean?
I will be there for you supporting you, guiding, advising, cheering you on for as long as it takes to achieve our agreed goals. There will come a time when the new job has been found or the new business is up and running when we no longer need to continue coaching. I do always hope however that we can stay in touch as friends.

Below are 10 most recent recommendations:
Chris provided friendly, open and honest advise during a period I was seeking alternate employment. His guidance was timely and relevant, with no hidden agenda. In my dealings with Chris, it was apparent that his motivations were to ensure my interests and aspirations were best served. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other people who find themselves in a similar situation.
Strategic Leader & Non Exec Director
Designs & Leads Complex Transformation & Organisational Change
In what was one of the most challenging industrial relations environments that I have ever encountered Chris and his team provided the most effective outplacement support that I could have hoped for in the circumstances. Chris' energy is truly inspiring, and his understanding of the needs of the employees in question was remarkable. The quality of service that Chris and team delivered was so good that my concerns about disruption to operations by people leaving the business never came to fruition, and the overwhelming majority of people were successfully transitioned into new roles.
Labour Relations Manager
American Fortune 100 Corporation
Due to the closure of operations at my place of work, Chris was brought in to lead its employee's through a career transition workshop. The workshop itself was very informative and excellently presented. It gave me up to date skills in the writing and presentation of a CV, a good understanding of how the job market has changed and now operates. Due to the long term nature of my previous employment this was essential knowledge that I would of not attained as quickly elsewhere.
The knowledge and confidence I gained from the workshop has directly led to my success in finding new employment.
Multi award winning manufacturing group
I had the pleasure of working with Chris when the opportunity of advancing my career was forced on me and Chris was excellent support and continual positive advice for me to walk straight in to my next position.
Group Financial Controller
Supplier for the national and international retail, commercial and food service markets
On a one-day seminar with Chris I learned more about how to present my CV, and how to present myself on the web, than from any number of enthusiastic amateurs with their well-meant advice ie 'team player', 'performs well under stress' etc. It was great to get the inside dope on what recruiters want to see, from a top recruiter's viewpoint instead of a jobseeker's viewpoint.
I recently attended an employment workshop run by Chris. It was a most interesting and informative day, with many ideas to take away and put into practice straightaway. As importantly I found Chris very knowledgeable, approachable and he had an infectious positive attitude which is just what you want when you are starting the search for a new role. I would recommend one of Chris’s workshops very highly.
Head of Marketing and Revenue Operations
Chris provided me with career coaching whilst I was seeking a new role following my relocation to the UK. Chris really helped me to focus my job search and provided me with some invaluable advice, hints & tips.
Chris has a real knack for bringing out the best in an individual and inspiring self-confidence.
He really is an expert in his field and knows his stuff, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris for his Career Coaching.

Multi-channel payment solutions business (LSE listed)
Chris, thank you very much for the excellent recruitment workshop last Friday. Having attended a few events like this in the past (but nowhere near as good!) my expectations were not that high. Your workshop on the other hand was packed with useful insights and massively exceeded my expectations. After 3 months of job search this was just what I needed to give me a fresh perspective and a new impetus, and I've been approaching my search with renewed energy this week!
Freelance Online Marketing Specialist
I attended a training course run by Chris. This training course helped me understand the world of recruitment and supported my approach to Recruiters. I have just been recruited to a post. Thank you Chris.
Improving Value team – NHS England
I was introduced to Chris at a very difficult time of my life. His seminar was approached with some trepidation on my part, but a very enjoyable and productive day followed where, among other things, Chris was able to describe a recruiters point of view to gaining a new employee.
Some of the ideas were novel -to say the least - all of them made sense and helped me a lot in my search for a new position.
I have no hesitation in recommending Chris as a career coach and very much hope that should I ever find myself in need of his services, he is available to help.
